Lakeland is a non-denominational bible church seated in the heart of the resort communities of Walworth County, WI. We’re ideally located about an hour from Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, IL. We are poised to make a huge kingdom impact in our community.
With approximately 1,000 people gathering each weekend to worship and experience God through the body, the excitement for what He is doing is contagious. Lakeland’s vision is to lead people to follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and commit to the mission of
Jesus...because lives are at stake. We don’t like to beat around the bush and play church, but instead motivate and activate His followers to go and be the church. Lakeland has a contemporary, down to earth, raw, and relevant feel. We connect people through
Small Groups and serving opportunities. Our leading value is Simple.
Experience with leading a Small Groups Ministry modeled after Real Life Ministries is required. The next Small Groups Pastor at Lakeland must be passionate about making disciples who make disciples. Our next SGP will be outgoing, catalytic, mission/vision
focused, caring and an expert at equipping and releasing leaders to minister. We are looking for a Champion of healthy biblical community and multiplication through reproducing disciples. This position includes developing and executing an annual small-groups
growth plan, identifying and recruiting group leaders, and ongoing leadership and coaching of group leaders and coaches within our leadership pipeline.
The work environment is fast-paced and driven. Lakeland allows staff to self-regulate time management to create healthy margin between ministry and family. The Small Groups Pastor will need to have strong self-leadership, a proven track record of developing
others, be highly relational and hard wired to work with teams. Lakeland is not looking for a creator of programs but a developer of people.
- Minimum of 5–7 years’ experience as a staff member in a ministry leadership capacity
- Bachelor’s degree in biblical studies or a related field (In certain cases, extensive ministry experience could fulfill this requirement.)
- Strong leader with a solid work ethic and ability to point-lead an established and growing leadership base
